Biomimetic Neural Learning for Intelligent Robots
Stefan Wermter, Günther Palm, Mark Elshaw

July 2005, Springer, Heidelberg
ISBN: 3-540-27440-5, £40, 388 pp. Softcover

This book presents research performed as part of the EU project on biomimetic multimodal learning in a mirror neuron-based robot (MirrorBot) and contributions presented at the International AI-Workshop in NeuroBotics. This type of robots is driven by recent new theories and experiments in neuroscience indicating that a biological and neuroscience-oriented approach could lead to new life-like robotic systems.
